Neighbourhood Plan

Posted: Fri, 23 Feb 2018 16:45 by Janet Taylor

The annual Parish Meeting will be held in the Village Hall on the 12th April, at 8pm, and as well as the usual stimulating agenda items, we plan to canvas support for a Braunston Neighbourhood Plan.

Over the past few years Neighbourhood Plans have become a useful tool allowing village communities to take charge of how their villages are developed in the future. The government initiative intended that those communities who made the effort to gather and publish a plan would generally have their preferences accepted as a higher priority than plans which might otherwise be imposed by their regional authority. So, is it time that our village took the initiative to define how we want it to look in the future? Who is interested in helping to draft such a plan, which might record village views on: building development (size, type, purpose), facilities, utilities, roads and footpaths, services, play areas, protection of the village character and heritage ?

Come to the Parish meeting and let's talk about it.
